(p.241) Conclusion
The Archaeology of French and Indian War Frontier Forts

Lawrence E. Babits

University Press of Florida

The conclusion summarizes interpretive results of the other chapters. Keene compares work at the different sites to demonstrate similarities among artifact assemblages, construction, and use. He also issues a call to action, because additional archaeological work conducted at French and Indian War forts and other military sites should address research questions designed to obtain specific types of comparative data. Earlier excavations should be reexamined and codified into more up-to-date formats, because there is much data that can be extracted from forts that have already been excavated. In fact, Keene suggests, reevaluation of entire artifact assemblages, or individual artifact classes, from French and Indian War forts may permit a more comprehensive evaluation of any patterning that may or may not be present. Defining the differences present among many fortified sites may be more important for explaining those occupations than simply reporting on the sites.
